The Dictionary of Architectural and Building Technology is a comprehensive summary of vocabulary used across the building industry, from the preparation of the brief through architectural and technical design and documentation, to construction technology and facilities management. This third edition introduces a further 2000 new entries, and updates areas of rapid change such as Computing, Facilities Management and Building Services Engineering. SI metric and Imperial units are included, and line drawings enhance the explanations. This impressively comprehensive work will enable students and professionals coming from technical, management and professional fields to grasp vocabulary from outside their areas as they contribute towards the built environment.
